Rebuilding Palestinians' homes

International activists help Palestinians rebuild their demolished homes in occupied Jerusalem.

    Israel has demolished more than 20,000 Palestinian homes in occupied East Jerusalem since 1967.

    And some residents have had their houses torn down multiple times.

    Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland reports from occupied East Jerusalem on how a small group of Israeli and international activists are helping rebuild Palestinian homes that have been repeatedly demolished.

    CORRECTION: This video report incorrectly identifies a member of the Israeli Committee against House Demolitions as Jeff Haplern. His name is Jeff Halper.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
